Hello.... Is this thing on?
It seems like forever since I've been here. I can't believe my last post was as recent as August 12. It feels like it has been at least 2 months instead of a couple weeks. As usual, I spent the dog days of August getting read for the Race for the Rivers. It was a good event but TOO hot. The heat index was 114 degrees (F)!!!! That was crazy. It was a good event for the folks who were there but, understandably, few others came out to check things out.
I spent the rest of my time making. I made soap. I made candles. I made backpacks. I made lanyards and key chains. I upcycled napkins. I pieced some quilt tops. I made market bags. I made pennants. I made prayer flags and DIY prayer flag kits. I made earrings. I made a crazy amount of stuff. I was a one person craft mall without the fake flowers!
I did a lot of work figuring out my booth and display items. I came up with some fun things I will share when I catch my breath.
Today I received an upcyler's dream: Grain bags from a microbrewery! How cool is that? I'll be making more bags. Anybody know the dimensions of a growler?
